Vanilla Alchemy Leveling Guide 1-300 - (Patch 8.2)

This Vanilla Alchemy leveling guide will show you the fastest way how to level your Alchemy skill up from 1 to 300 as inexpensively as possible.

Professions skills are split between expansions now, you'll have a separate skill bar for each expansion. This guide is for the "Vanilla" Alchemy skill in the current retail version of World of Warcraft. I have a separate guide for Classic WoW, so if you are looking for that, visit my Classic WoW Alchemy Leveling Guide.

Alchemy is the best combined with Herbalism. You can save a lot of gold if you level these two professions together because you can farm all the needed herbs. 

Often the materials are based on a case that you will gain one skill point each craft. This won't happen, so you will have to buy a few extra materials while you are leveling your Alchemy.

If you are low on gold, I recommend you to try this Gold Making Guide, it can help you to make loads of gold.

If you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt, I recommend you to use a leveling guide. You can level your character to level 120 in 8 days with this guide.

Goblin characters have +15 Alchemy skill because of their passive [Better Living Through Chemistry]. An extra 15 Alchemy skill means recipes stay orange/yellow for 15 more points. You can save a lot of gold by doing lower level recipes for 15 more points.


1 - 155

First, visit any trainer in the main cities of old Azeroth - just ask a guard, and learn Alchemy.

You can find [Crystal Vial] at "Alchemy Supplies" vendors, they are usually near the Alchemy trainer.

  • 60-105
    50 x [Lesser Healing Potion] - 50 Minor Healing Potion, 50 Briarthorn

    The recipe will be yellow for the last few points, so you might not reach 105, but you can still go to the next recipe.

  • 110-140
    30 x [Healing Potion] - 30 Bruiseweed, 30 Briarthorn

    This recipe will be yellow for the last 5 points, so you might have to make a few extra.

155 - 215

215 - 300

  • 215-240
    25 x [Superior Healing Potion] - 25 Sungrass, 25 Khadgar's Whisker

    You can make this one up to 250 if it's easier for you to get Sungrass instead of Blindweed.

    This recipe will be yellow for the last few points, so you might have to make a few extra.

I hope you liked this Alchemy leveling guide, congratulations on reaching 300!

WoW Leveling Guide 1-110 Do you want to reach level 120 fast?

I recommend Zygor's Leveling Guide. The guide is in a small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quest is included. You’ll never have to switch back to a website, or even the in-game main map to see where you have to go or what’s next. The guide is available for both Horde and Alliance.

I use Zygor's guide for leveling and I highly recommend it.
